Vegan Pound Cake
1/2 cup vegan butter, softened (used Earth Balance)
1 1/2 cups granulated or raw organic sugar (I used 1 cup sugar to 1/2 c stevia... Make sugar free by simply using stevia only, or other favorite clean sweetener)
6 ounces plain or low fat Silken firm tofu
2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 5 x 9" loaf pan or angel food cake/ pound cake circle pan.
2. Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. 3. Beat in tofu until well combined. Add 1 cup flour and, with mixer on low, mix just until incorporated.
4. Add water and extracts and do the same.
5.End with remaining cup of flour and baking powder. Increase speed to medium and beat for 1-2 minutes.
6. Spoon mixture into pan and lightly smooth the top. Place on the center rack of the oven and bake for 55 minutes.
